 Putting chains on L35 for snowplowing

I need to put chains on a L35 for plowing and there is not enough clearance to get by the backhoe framework. Any suggestions? Anyone know where to find a spacer to move the rims out about 1" or so?

Can you turn the wheels around to gain the space?

There are other types of "chain" out there that are made of cable which should have a tighter profile.

Thought of that. The rims are not made to reverse, they're out as far as they'll go, so switching sides won't help. As for cable, I've only seen that type for a car tire and don't know that they would hold up well plowing snow. Thanks though.

Have you tried it without the chains?

I plow commercially with 30-40hp Kubota L series machines on R4's with no chains, with proper ballast (like a B/H) you should be fine unless it's really icey.

I have a 7.5' Meyers pickup truck plow in place of the bucket on my own personal L4310 and have no problem pushing a huge pile of snow with it. It sits on R4's also.

Best of luck.

Another suggestion is onspot tire chains....don't know the exact cost? Look at the demo video on www.tirechains.com
and on the far left side of column check out the onspot type tire chains. Really great idea that someone could rig up themselves and so easy. The chain only goes under the point of contact on the tire, never up and around like all the chains, really great idea!

I tend to agree with Murf. I have owned two tractors with the industrial tires and they are great in the snow as long as you have the proper ballast as he mentioned.

One thing though, I do tend to go places that have gotten me into trouble with that rear mounted blower. The front bucket has saved me in that I can lift and push to free myself.

Thanks for the tips. I've plowed without chains and done ok but once it gets glazed over, and my driveway is on a hill, I can not get anywhere. The front bucket has helped me get backed up, but I've had enuogh close calls to want the chains. I'll keep looking, I know I'm not the only one with this problem.

Don't know if this applies to the Kubota L series tractor but on my Kubota B7610 the rear tread width is controlled by moving the wheel assembly to different pre drilled pin positions on the the rear drive shaft, I think there are 3 holes that provide for about 1 inch between each position.
